Note that the herd will not travel through a moongate and the skill Peacemaking will dissolve the herd, if used as area-effect. A particularly sneaky way of using this skill is, to use the skill Stealth to stay hidden, while herding dangerous monsters to other players.
Training of course involves usage of the skill. After first training up to 30 skill points, practical use is needed. Here is a list of what animals should be herded for maximal training effect.
|Skill Level||What to herd for training|
|0 - 30||Train at NPC Rancher, Ranger Guildmaster, or Shepherd.|
|30 - 45||Cows and Sheep|
|45 - 60||Hinds and Timber Wolves|
|60 - 75||Walrus and Polar Bears|
|75 - 85||Snow Leopards and Panthers|
|85 - 100||Great Harts and White Wolves|
|100 - 125||Ridgebacks and Bulls|
